The Pine Island Glacier is the largest discharger of ice in Antarctica and the continent's fastest moving glacier. This area of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is also believed to be the most susceptible to collapse. The evolution of this glacier is therefore of great interest to the scientific community. It is an area of Antarctica which is experiencing rapid changes. The grounding line of Pine Island Glacier is retreating, the glacier is thinning rapidly, and its ice flow is accelerating...

[movies]The Solar Dynamo: Plasma Flows - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
In this visualization, we illustrate the fluid flows in the Sun which drive the solar magnetic dynamo. The flows can be considered as a combination of two components, a toroidal component and a meridional component. The toroidal flow corresponds to the rotational motion of the Sun. In the cut-away view, this motion is represented by the streaking flow vectors. The color code of the cross-section on the right-hand side illustrates the rotational period of this flow...

[movies]The Solar Dynamo: Toroidal and Poloidal Magnetic Fields - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
Using the solar plasma flows as input (see The Solar Dynamo: Plasma Flows), the equations of magnetohydrodynamics, and 'seeding' the calculations with an initial small magnetic field, one can compute how a magnetic field can grow and be maintained. This is the dynamo process, the net result being that part of the Sun's outflowing thermal convective energy from nuclear processes is used to create the magnetic field.In this view of the solar dynamo mechanism, we examine the evolution of the toroid...

[movies]A Tour of the Cryosphere - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
A new HD version of this animation is available here.Click here to go to the media download section.The cryosphere consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including areas of snow, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, ice sheets, and icebergs. In these regions, surface temperatures remain below freezing for a portion of each year. Since ice and snow exist relatively close to their melting point, they frequently change from solid to liquid and back again due to...

[movies]Deforestation of Rondonia, Brazil, from 1975 to 2001 - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
Throughout much of the 1980s, deforestation in Brazil eliminated more than 15,000 square kilometers (9000 square miles) per year. That pace has only increased through the 90s and into the 21st century.Brazil is also home to more than a quarter of Earth's tropical forests. Considering that the band of lush green that circles the globe through many equatorial nations is fundamental to the overall health of the whole planet's environment, careful monitoring of forest health in the tropics is essent...

[movies]Aura/OMI Ozone Hole from September 12, 2004 to November 15, 2004 with Polar Vortex Demarcation - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
Data from NASA satellites establishes a 40-year record of stratospheric ozone measurements. The stratospheric ozone layer shields life on Earth from harmful solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Research shows that excess exposure to UV radiation causes skin cancer and eye problems and impacts plant growth. Global stratospheric ozone has decreased by 3 percent globally between 1980 and 2000 and has thinned by 50 percent over Antarctica in winter and spring...

[movies]Bolivian Deforestation from 1984 to 2000 - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
The Landsat Project was started to study the land and land processes. The program is now working on Landsat 7.We are able to compare older data sets to newer ones. Using a Landsat images of Bolivia taken in 1984 and 2000, we can see the dramatic deforestation of the Bolivian rainforest. Note: Using a Landsat images of Bolivia taken in 1984 and 2000, we can see the dramatic deforestation of the Bolivian rainforest...

[movies]Great Zoom into Don Juan Pond, Antarctica (Treatment #2 South) - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
Antarctica is the coldest and most remote continent on Earth. It is also home to one of the most Mars-like places that scientists can study without actually traveling to the fourth planet. In this sequence we plunge from space down to a remarkably detailed view of a unique part of the Dry Valleys. By studying this place, researchers think they might gain insight into how life on Mars might either survive now or have developed in the past...

This still of the Earth with clouds is intended to be wrapped to a sphere. The look (i.e., appearance of the clouds, coloration of the ocean, etc) was art-directed to meet the needs of a particular production.This visualization was created in support of the Science on a Sphere film called "Largest" which is about Jupiter. This still image matches several other Earth apperances from the film. Note: Flat Earth still...

[image]Chesapeake Bay Landsat-7 Mosaic - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
The Chesapeake Bay Landsat-7 Mosaic is a composite of eight Landsat-7 scenes acquired during the period of 1999-2002, where each pixel represents about 15 square meters on the ground. The original data set was a false-color Landsat-7 (ETM+) image using bands 7,4,2 and the panchromatic band (8). Color correction has been applied to resemble natural looking colors.This page offers the full color-corrected data set for download and lets you look around at it using the online viewer...

[image]Compare the Size of Antarctica to the Continental United States - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio. LIMA Data provided by: Patricia Vornberger (SAIC). LIMA data produced by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and NASA.
Antarctica is the highest, driest, coldest, windiest and brightest of the seven continents. It is roughly the size of the United States and Mexico combined and is almost completely covered by a layer of ice that averages more than one mile in thickness, but is nearly three miles thick in places. This ice accumulated over millions of years through snowfall. Presently, the Antarctic ice sheet contains 90% of the ice on Earth and would raise sea levels worldwide by over 200 feet were it to melt...
